San Francisco based social shopping startup Wanelo’s former co-founder, Sarvjeet Ahuja has joined the board of Klip.in as Technical Advisor. Wanelo is currently valued at USD 100 million and is working in the similar space as Klip, thus making Sarvjeet an apt choice for the Indian version of Wanelo, Klip.in.
Sarvjeet is a post graduate from IIT Roorkee and is general partner at The Morpheus, where he actively mentors incubated startups.
With 16+ years of professional experience, Sarvjeet has been working on various technologies and domains throughout his career. As part of the role at Klip, he will be working closely with the core team to mentor developers, and more importantly to translate product vision into product strategy and roadmap.
“Having helped recruit the tech team for Klip, I am now looking forward to work closely with them to put the right systems in place to scale what’s clearly an exciting product in an exciting space,” said Sarvjeet.
Mumbai based Klip.in is a Venture Nursery backed startup that had earlier raised its first round of funding from the Charter Angels of Venture Nursery, Mumbai Angels and other independent investors last year. The funding was to be primarily used for developing the technology team and building a community of online shoppers.
The portal primarily caters to young Indian audience aged between 18-35. Majority of the core audience of these are college going and young professional women who are aged between 18-25.
It is basically a social curation platform, which helps users discover interesting lifestyle and fashion products from across the web. It aims to simplify the online shopping experience by aggregating all the products on one platform and curating it based on their social connections.
